    Related: The Corporate Interests Behind The Homestead Migrant Youth Detention Center The U.S. government's "Zero-Tolerance" policy on immigration created a surge in the number of children that are locked up in detention facilities. The largest migrant youth detention facility in the U.S. is the Homestead detention center in Florida. It holds at least 2,000 children and is the only for-profit migrant youth detention facility to date. The Homestead detention center is operated by Comprehensive Health Services (CHS), a subsidiary of Caliburn International Corporation, which is owned by private equity firm DC Capital Partners. The Homestead Detention Center The Homestead immigrant youth detention facility has the capacity to hold 2,350 people. As of March 2019, Comprehensive Health Services has received nearly half a billion dollars from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to run the detention center. The Homestead facility was previously used as a Job Corps training center. It has operated as an “influx care facility” site for unaccompanied undocumented minors from June 2016 to April 2017 and was reopened for that purpose again in March 2018. On December 19, 2018, Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon and Representative Judy Chu introduced bicameral legislation that called for the closure of the Homestead facility. Neither has been put to the floor for a vote.

    I hear some farmers can’t find immigrant workers to work the jobs lazy Americans don’t want. Plus the China thing. Plus the other things. And don’t forget those too. Somebody has to pay for it all. It’s thanksforgiving, after all.

    ____ New Attorney General Nominee William Barr’s Record on Guns Revealed Dec 08, 2018 President Trump said yesterday that he intends to nominate William Barr as Sessions’ replacement. The choice has been greeted by applause from both Democrats and Republicans. Barr is a Bush 41 retread, having served as Assistant Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General, and finally as Attorney General. BATFE was under the Department of Treasury during Bush 41’s term and the Department of Justice had only limited authority over firearms. Barr has said little about firearms or gun control during his career, but he is widely considered to be the author of PL 101-647, The Crime Control Act of 1990.

    The REAL version of freedom was the Federation of States. The CONstitution was a Hamiltonian coup to set up a big central gov, restore mercantilism (the main reason for the Revolution), and to imitate Britain in elitism & ruling the populace. This was called "Nationalism"and it has worked beautifully. If you can see and understand this, you are waking up- if you worship the state more than individual liberty then welcome to The Matrix.

    Been saying this forever: Deceived in Liberty: The Curse of American Nationalism By Thomas DiLorenzo November 16, 2019 All governmental power is propped up by an avalanche of myths and superstitions about the alleged benevolence, omniscience, honesty, selflessness, and magnanimity of the state, coupled with critiques if not outright demonization of private property, free market voluntarism, private enterprise, limited government, the rule of law, the free society, and all those who educate about and advance such concepts. Your author once co-authored a book entitled , about mountains of such myths and superstitions. A case can be made that at the top of the list of statist myths and superstitions is the myth of American nationalism — about the supposed “superiority” of a virtually unlimited, centralized and consolidated government, coupled with the never-ending hatred and demonization of federalism, states’ rights, nullification and secession, and anything else that challenges the notion of the “supremacy” of the central government. In this regard American “nationalism” has nothing to do with the older concept of a people with a common language and culture, living within the borders of their own nation state. The unique American version of “nationalism” was invented at the time of the founding by a group of conniving, Machiavellian politicians who sought to overthrow the results of the American Revolution – the casting off of the centralized, oppressive, mercantilist/crony capitalist British empire – and adopt the very same system in America – the British empire without the British. There is nothing wrong with a corrupt, tyrannical, mercantilist empire that uses the coercive powers of the state to enrich the ruling class at the expense of the working class, these men said, confident that they would naturally assume the position of the ruling class.

    If the case against Trump is as unfounded as his apologists claim, then they should welcome a Republican-led trial in the Senate as a golden opportunity to embarrass the Democrats and counteract what they say is happening in the House. Putting the evidence favoring Trump in full display should be more beneficial for him and other Republicans than immediately dismissing the case would be.

    The presidency typically, more than usually, lasts 2 terms, unless something very drastic takes place. Knowing this, the people support 2 terms of a democrat, before figuring out that things really don’t get better, then decide it is time for republicans to take over for 2 terms, same downward spiral... back and forth, left, right, under the same structured corporate government and federal reserve. Bill served 2, GWB served 2, Obama served 2, it was clearly the republicans turn regardless of who it was. Trump supported Hillary’s bid to senate, which she won, on top of being friends with the Clintons. Trump was a shoe-in the democrat that he is, only stick an R after the name and everything is good to go. Rand and others being necessary nuisances, required for TV ratings and to appear “fair”.

    For the most part, voters and non do not care about facts and records. They only care about podium rhetoric and empty promises. The key to liberty in the future is to educate the ones coming up in this world. This is exactly what Ron Paul and other freedom advocates understand and preach. It is not elections that matter. It is the hearts and minds of people that matter.

    It doesn’t matter. It wil be another waste of time and money. Until The People understand what true liberty really means and how it would benefit us all, republicans, democrats, and independent voters will still continue to vote as they always have while sacrificing liberty and wads of money for false security. Look at the past hundred years or so, for instance. The way politicians talk at the podium (rhetoric), lie, give in, along with common core public schools and colleges, media and whirl-wind unicorns and utopia... only a small few who understand will carry the torch as the majority, Democrats, indy’s, yes even republicans, attempt to put out its flame.

    He was, and still is, all over the map. His supporters may fall back on that as a way to avoid pinning him down as an all-out socialist. But at the very least, we can definitely say that he won the Republican primaries by being the candidate who was hardest to pin down, while defeating a field of opponents who ran to the right of him as more consistently anti-socialist than he was willing to be.

    No. The Affordable Care Act is what we have here now. The Affordable Care Act also is not socialized medicine. Trump, like Bernie Sanders, wanted to repeal and replace that. Sanders openly said that he wanted to replace it with socialized medicine, while Trump, like Romney before him, refrained from saying openly what he wanted to replace it with. What Trump did was openly praise the socialized medicine of Canada and Scotland. And he did it right in one of the Republican debates. And he won that party's nomination while doing that.

    Yes. And the others voted for McCain, Romney, and Trump. But the number who voted for none of the above (i.e. who didn't vote for socialism) was higher among blacks than whites in all except 2012. And income was an even more significant factor than race, with only a tiny minority of the highest income group refraining from voting for socialists, while the majority of the lowest income voters refrained.

    I do recall that. He praised other nations' socialized healthcare programs, while campaigning for the Republican primaries. He mocked other Republicans for wanting to cut agricultural subsidies. He mocked the most modest entitlement reform proposals as wanting the elderly to starve. He openly advocated protectionist trade policies. And he made his most defining issue the construction of a border wall. He touted his leftist sister as a great option for a Supreme Court justice (his later adoption of the list of candidates that Heritage Foundation gave him didn't come until after he had already won the nomination). He sounded like a mid-twentieth century Democrat running in a general election. And he won the Republican primary that way.

    This is not true. In most elections, including the most recent three, nonhispanic whites vote (which means they vote for Socialists) at higher rates than nonhispanic blacks, hispanics, or other. http://www.electproject.org/home/voter-turnout/demographics And among those whites, it isn't primarily the poor ones who are voting, but the wealthier ones. https://econofact.org/voting-and-income It is literally the case that the group in America that votes for socialism at the highest rates is wealthy whites, to the tune of about 85%. And as you move outside of that group to nonwhites and lower income people, they vote for socialists at progressively lower rates to the point that among the lowest income groups a full majority refrains from voting for socialists, and this percentage that refrains from voting for socialists is especially high among nonwhites, particularly hispanics.

    Possibly. On the other hand, maybe the wiggle-room some of those clauses gave was there on purpose all along. Hamilton, who was the primary author of the Constitution, certainly had an agenda of focusing power on a centralized federal government more than he let on in the Federalist Papers.

    Ron would do what he is doing now, which trump and 99% of the politicians will never do. Ron would tell us that we do not need trillion dollar omnibus, take guns first due process later, that we need to protect oil, or that a wall is essential to liberty. trump can say and do what he wants, but as long as people are led by the nose via trump, msm, common core, political flip-flops, deep state or whatever you term it these days, etc., the people will never know the truth. Most people, most voters, are too busy with their daily lives trying to get ahead in this world. Most people rely and count on politicians to make the best decisions for them, which is the very reason we are in this stinking mess. Voices like Ron, mine, Larken, Walter Block, Kokesh and others, who take the time to explain through words AND action, that we do not need politicians and govt. organized crime, are essential if humans are ever to wake up to the ideas of freedom, liberty and fiscal responsibility. YOUR way, like trump's, just perpetuates what has caused this very mess to begin with. You, sir, are an excellent advertiser and endorser of the 2-party slave-owners. BTW, trump NEVER talks about, even in a round about way, the root problems of why we are in this mess. Certainly NOT when he signs Omnibus, "emergency" spending bills, talks about raise the age to 21 and a host of other idiotic things contrary not only to libertarians and republicans, but human beings as a whole.
